Eating Out In Tasmania: Zum
I also read the about Retro Cafe close by. They had won the Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide’s award for best cafe in 2005. But the breakfast menu in there was so limited, and the atmosphere was pretty flat, I had no desire to eat there.
Zum had been recommended to me by Zoe Skewes (@HeraldSunFood) on Twitter, and the breakfast menu there had lots of variety. It had such a fantastic atmosphere, I was so glad we finally ended up there.
Served with a berry compote and King Island Cream
I have been wanting to try ricotta hotcakes since seeing and hearing about Bill Granger’s famous ricotta hotcakes.
When my dish arrived at the table, we all took a step back to take in the size of the serve. This was a breakfast of champions! The hotcakes were so light and fluffy. Teamed up with the berries and cream (and I’m not a huge cream person), was just freaking fantastic. I had trouble finishing it all, but I’m so glad I did; or I would be sitting here wishing I had.
ZUM is now one of my favorite places in Tasmania for sure. I noticed there is also one on Elizabeth Street in North Hobart.
Service here was outstanding. The wait staff constantly working extremely hard to keep everyone happy.
They also sell one of my favourite beverages; Charlies’ Homemade Lemonade, as well as drink from the Phoenix range. In fact they are freely available in Hobart! I have such trouble finding them in Melbourne.

The pancakes do look delish!
I love Zum too – I've been a number of times, for brekky and lunch, when I've been down in Hobart for work. It's been consistently good for the last few years…
